Children and young adults usually go for the bright candy wrappers and the fruit flavors. We know this and so does Big Tobacco. So they are making addictive products look like candy.  Many people think flavored cigars and smokeless tobacco products are safer than regular cigarettes.

Let’s review some facts about flavored cigars and smokeless tobacco products.

  • All tobacco products contain nicotine
  • Nicotine is absorbed through the lining of the mouth
  • Contains higher levels of cancer-causing chemicals
  • Contains more tar than cigarettes
  • The smoker and those around him or her are also exposed
    • carbon monoxide
    • ammonia
    • other substances

Smoking & Breastfeeding

Smoking while breastfeeding is not without risk. Nicotine is harmful for a baby whose body is still developing quickly.  There are ways to avoid exposing your baby to nicotine by smoking after breastfeeding instead of before, and not smoking at least 2 hours before feeding.

Experts and doctors would rather have a smoking mother who breastfeeds than a smoking mother who gives formula milk. Medical experts state the nutrients in breast milk can more than compensate for the ill effects of smoking, as compared to a smoking mother that gives formula.

 

Let’s quit to make baby’s first food healthier.
